Things that can go wrong with your election leaflet, part 94

Normally spelling the name of your party’s leader wrong on a leaflet would be enough to get it filed in the “things not to do” pile, but the Scottish Labour Party managed another mistake in a recent leaflet that rather put the misspelling in the shade:

Labour has been ridiculed for sending out campaign leaflets urging people to vote for the party in a local election in which it is not standing.

The name of Scottish leader Iain Gray is also misspelled in the pamphlet.

The mistake came about after the party noticed its candidate in Angus Council’s Monifieth and Sidlaw ward lived just outside the council border.

He was therefore ineligible to stand, but by that time a leaflet distribution company had already been hired.

It was also too late to find a new candidate to stand in the 25 June council by-election. (BBC)
